The season of Advent marks the beginning of the Christian year as we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus on Christmas Day. The word "Advent" means "to come," and for the four Sundays leading up to Christmas, we prepare our hearts to receive the life of God with us as we remember Jesus coming into the world.
On each Sunday in Advent, we will feature a devotional on our blog from a Bear Valley staff member. The four Sunday entries will correspond to the traditional themes of these days:
- November 29 - Hope
- December 6 - Love
- December 13 - Joy
- December 20 - Peace
We will also have devotionals for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We hope you will take a few minutes to check in each week and focus with us on the good news of the coming of Jesus. Share these devotionals with your family and friends and spread the love of Jesus in this Christmas season!
